Sometimes I Do Other Things Besides Read
One of the things I love to do when I'm not reading, is knitting. With such a hot summer, that is something I've put aside and haven't touched for quite a while. With the cooler weather, I'll have to dust off my knitting needles, work my stiff old fingers out and get back to working on another pair of socks. My husband loves heavy wool socks for hunting, so I try to get a pair or two done for him every year.
Iowa Cruise Socks by Carole Anderson of Cottage Creations. I knit these using Lion Brand Fisherman's Wool. This is one of my son’s favorite patterns for warm winter socks. I used some Kool-Aid dyed wool that I had done for the accent color. This is my 8th pair of socks that I’ve made from this pattern.
